Hi I'm Daniel Peterson

I am a young man who grew up in Utah. I play the piano and love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am Pristhood holder and a senior in high school. Since I was 6 I have played the piano, and am currently in the performing choir (Madrigal Choir) in my high school as a singer and accompanist. I compete as a pole vaulter, and have also played soccer and basketball for many years. I always enjoy trying new sports. I love music, sports, and education, and will strive to improve and learn in each throughout my life. I love the Church and am preparing to serve a mission in the Philippines.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and try to live it to the fullest. I have felt the love my Heavenly Father gives me and his children many times, and have grown a strong testimony in the truthfulness of the Gospel in these latter days. The first aspect of the LDS religion that I gained a testimony of was missionary work. As a sophomore in High School, my seminary teacher bore his powerful testimony about missionary work, and I felt so spiritually enlightened and impacted by the Spirit that I felt, that I too gained a strong testimony of missionary work and am preparing to serve a two year mission. I know that God is there and can help us through any struggles and trials in our lives. He has helped me overcome many in my life, through the Savior's sacrifice for our us. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the LDS church by being a positive and spiritual example to everyone around me. In my personal study, I have tried to gain a strong testimony of this Gospel, and have studied the works of both the living prophets and those who wrote in The Book of Mormon and other LDS scripture. I participate in my ward through administering and blessing the sacrament for the congregation during sacrament meeting as a Priesthood holder. I also am a home teacher and a music accompanist as well. I love serving my God and worshipping him through my callings within the church and my own personal study habits.
